My name is Tori Thurman and I am in Troop 1020 in Tempe.
My project is called Healing Art. Many people in institutions, such as retirement homes, suffer from anxiety, loneliness, depression, and boredom. Photography can help lessen those feelings. Institutions often budget last for art and photography making them scarce. For my Gold Award Project I will take photos and collect photos from others that can be used in different mediums, such as photo books, prints for art galleries, and slideshows to combat anxiety, loneliness, depression and boredom in these institutions. I would like to donate these items to several institutions as well as create a digital platform for many more to access.
Thank you for supporting my project!
